I am shocked and disturbed!!
I can hardly believe that Croatia Airlines changed the colors into this, well, crap! ... I mean first JAT comes out with these new dots (or simply traffic lights) now Croatia has new squares, what are they racing which airline will have less interesting colourscheme?! It certainly looks like that. Oh my God... I have a feeling these airlines will never learn!
I think old colors were kind of nice, blue stood up for the sea, and now when planes are all white - standing for what!? I don't get it. I thought only JAT was silly enough to go for such an image, but apparently not the only one.
By the way, I had no idea that Croatia Airlines was planning livery change, or corporate image change!? Apparently they have changed the tail design and removed blue belly from the airplanes, but the logo remained the same!? What is that!? Image change!?

Eventhough you can't see it clearly from the attached photo, it looks like blue belly stays...
Croatia is not changing anything except the tail on their aircrafts.
It's not that I like it, but there is quite a difference if you compare it with JAT.
I agree that the girl who designed it (Ivana Ivankovic, corporate designer, hopefully unemployed soon...) needs some more imagination.

Sure, not the most imaginative in the world, but not a complete disaster. I do agree that as a small country, Croatia probably needs a bit more prominence. This doesn't help, but it's not unattractive.

I do not find it so horrible but it would have looked a lot nicer if the whole fuselage was painted in the same way as the tale, like the Croatian national football-teams shirts. Or my imagination is sick

It looks very similar to the new JAT livery, they would of been the same if they used billboard style lettering for the 'CROATIA' titles. I'm sorry to say that the tail now looks a little bare. They should of made the squares larger.
